Additionally, this group will review the applications for the Women’s Safety Grant and provide feedback and suggestions on outcomes. 

About

The BUSU Sexual Violence Advisory Committee is created to follow Bill 132 which obligated for colleges and university to involve students regarding sexual violence policies. The Act has required colleges and university to have stand-alone sexual violence policies that set out the process that will apply when incidents of sexual violence are reported. The BUSU Sexual Violence Advisory Committee creates a yearly report on Brock University’s sexual harassment policy and work done by the SVEC.  

Membership and Term

Committee members will participate in four (4) closed-session meetings per academic year. The committee will be comprised of 2 co-chairs- One representing BUSU, the other appointment decided on by the committee to represent the open study body. There will be a representative from HRE Sexual Violence Support and Education Office, and other key stakeholders as identified by the group (i.e residence life, ABSS, International student ambassador).

Applications for the committee will take place each September. Call for application will be found on the HRE website and various other media outlets as required. Members may serve up to two consecutive terms. If special circumstances warrant members play be allowed to add an additional third term to their service.
